I wish Zygi was going through a thorough search for a competent GM. FIRE RICK SPIELMAN!

How about a "thorough search" for a GM that doesn't blow a number twelve pick for a third rounder or admit when he's wrong and keep forcing that pick down the head coach's throat ??? ... Common sense will prevail one of these days ...

I hope Spielman picks coaches better than he picks QBs.

Anybody who has worked in a large organization and has listened to/looked at Spielman while he is speaking has to wonder what a man of such limited ability is doing in a position like that. The seat licenses may not be worth what the Zigmeister is asking.

I find it surprising that Zigi, et.al seem to let this guy fool them at every turn. They dont seem to be the type to be swayed by good hair and good teeth, but that seems to be about all that Spielman brings to the table.

IT is ok to take your time as long as you dont take too long and all the good coaches are gone.YOU just cant sit there watching every team hire a coach and say thats ok.SPIELMAN better be very aggressive and work his butt off he has alot of people who dont believe in him so heres his chance.

I have no problems with Spielman taking his time to pick the next coach. Remember the last time the Vikings rushed to fill the position? We ended up with Childress. Of course then again I'm with the others wishing Spielman was also fired along with Frazier.

I think Vikings has a problem because of Rick Spieman. Vikings need hire winning GM, not Rick Spieman. And also Vikings needs a franchise Quaterback. not ponder or carsell. boo!!
